Many caterers close off certain dates with the intention of giving staff a breather—and simultaneously cutting back on other costs. IN other words, prop sects are told that the date they are seeking is closed. A few days, very often a Friday or Monday, plus a weekend, are declared a “stealth” or invisible closing. No bookings for those dates are taken. Everyone in the company knows that a mini-break is on the books to increase the staff’s quality of life. This time can also used for outside contractors to come into the facility to deep clean or do other maintenance, repair or upkeep.
Remember: there are variable costs accumulating whenever your company is open. Everything from cost of staff consumables while at work to lights and phone calls. Every little bit of savings helps.
